Andrey Kuznetsov ESG consultant, LEED AP BD+C Self Employed LEEDuser Basic Member 6 thumbs up May 11, 2024- 11:48 am I don't have much experience in campus projects. As per my knowledge and per "LEED Campus Guidance" there is no limitations for C&S projects.  If there no option at LEED Online to switch to overall C&S, it better to submit such documentation individually to each project, to gian more points.  I think it's similar to v4/v4.1- you can start group project as v4, but switch for v4.1 credits https://leeduser.buildinggreen.com/forum...

After reading this it appears that cleaning, cleaners and training are being undervalued.  This should be remedied.
